Edward M. O'Connell

CLIFTON PARK — Edward M. O'Connell, age 77 years, of 40 Valencia Lane, Clifton Park N.Y., passed away at home surrounded by his family on Jan. 6, 2013. He was born in North Adams, Mass. and has been a resident of the Capital District his entire life.

Ed also ran a successful income tax preparation business with his wife, Betty, for more than 26 years.

Ed was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, hunting and nature in all its forms at every opportunity. He also loved to participate in a good poker game with his family, even if the stakes were for pennies.

O'Connell; grandfather of Danielle, Mackenzie, Hunter, Cameron, Emily, Liam, and Zachary, in addition to many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.

A note of special thanks to those who have been enormously supportive to Ed's wife, Betty, during his illness. Betty is eternally grateful for your loving assistance provided during this very difficult time.
